I picked up a cramp buster for my KLR-650 because of pain in my right wrist on long trips. This simple piece of plastic did an excellent job of relaxing my grip on the throttle and allowed my wrist to be aligned on the grip at a more relaxed angle. I tried it out on a recent four day trip through the Smoky Mountains and it worked like a charm. There's a lot of throttle work going through the mountains, especially on a KLR, and I never once had an issue with the cramp buster getting in the way or being a safety issue. I'll add that I have the cramp buster mounted on my Oxford heated grips and there was no issue with the cramp buster slipping. This is a great piece of kit!

Bike Master Hand Mitts are an excellent value. If you want to extend your riding season deeper into the fall and start earlier in the spring, this is a great way to do it! The fit isn't perfect, but I understand that they are 'one-size-fits-all'. I have a '12 Suzuki DL650 with Suzuki hand guards, so I have a lot going on up there already, but they do fit around all off that and the wind protection is outstanding! I am now comfortable down to 40* and would highly recommend these to anyone looking for an option to heated grips.

I bought this holder to hold my Garmin Nuvi 2689 LMT. I just finished a 1,000 mile four day trip through the Smokey Mountains and the X-Grip worked perfectly! The ball and socket joints allowed me to perfectly position my GPS on the right side of the handlebars of my KLR-650. This keeps the GPS just above the crossbar and below my Neutral indicator light. The mount stayed secure, even when going over rough ground. I found the X-grip part of the mount did pivot a bit but I had no issues with observing or using the GPS in the mount. Although I didn't have any issues with my GPS coming out of the mount I recommend you buy the rubber together that they sell just to be sure your expensive GPS/phone doesn't fall out. I used a couple of heavy elastic bands to hold my GPS in the holder but I'll order the optional rubber together because it's robust and will last a lot longer than my thick elastics. Overall, money well spent!

I bought these grips to replace my worn out current ones on my 98 Magna. The "chrome" pieces on them are plastic with the chrome covering but that is to be expected for the price. I wasn't expecting anything spectacular but the grips felt nice and were pleasing to the eye for me. I used a grip adhesive to install them and the left grip slid on without any issue but I noticed that the plastic chrome end cap didn't quite slide all the way onto the handlebar. This would have caused an issue of it eventually being ripped off by not having the support of the handlebar inside of it. I tampered with it for a few minutes and believe I was able to get it to fit as it felt more solid. The right side grip also installed easily with the grip adhesive but as I was putting a bit of pressure on the grip to ensure that the end cap wouldn't have the same issue as the left side, the plastic chrome end cap started to separate form the rubber grip. I wasn't prying on it or pulling it at all, rather pushing it onto the handlebar but apparently that was enough pressure to separate the cap from the grip. Upon further inspection I found that whatever method or adhesive the company uses to secure the end cap to the grip is poor and is quite susceptible to separating. I decided to remove the grips before the adhesive set and return them because this is unacceptable for a product. I understand that it is cheap and it will not be the most durable product but I would expect not to run into a quality issue right off the bat.... I am disappointed because I liked the feel and look of the grips but I will not be buying these again.

doesn't work on a KLR.

They seem well made, and they look great once installed, but like previous reviewers said, you have to drill a new dimple hole for the throttle housing. The hole for the wires to run through is useless because the hole on top where the wires should come out is covered by the controls. Overall good bars. I didn't notice much change in riding position from the stock bars.
